Another vendor is Kenneth Johnson of Carmel, IN, who sells on eBay under the username kjcarmel. He has them polished and lacquered. He has the sizes — just tell him the ID of your hose.
It seems to me that the stick hose available in the last few years has a smaller outside diameter (OD) than the stick hose of a few years ago. Suggest you also measure the **OD** of your hose stock and provide that as well.
However, I’ve found that lacquering does not hold up well, and they get pretty funky within a year. I’ve had better luck with polishing regular galvanized 2-wire clamps on a buffer, then spraying them with clear ENAMEL out of a rattle-can from the hardware store.
